|Family||Princess Gwaelin (daughter)|
King Lorik is the ruler of Alefgard in Dragon Quest. He often worries about his missing daughter, Lady Lora, though he himself only tasks the Hero with defeating the Dragonlord and recovering the stolen Ball of Light.
King Lorik (ラルス16世/Rarusu XVI) is the first to speak with the Hero and requests that the descendant of Erdrick defeat the Dragonlord and recover the Ball of Light. He gives the Hero 120 gold coins, a torch and a Magic Key to assist him in his quest. The Hero will also need to rescue his daughter, Lady Lora, from a Green dragon. King Lorik has the ability to tell the Hero how many experience points are needed to reach the next level and is the only person in Dragon Quest that can record your deeds onto the Imperial Scrolls of Honor.
"Descendant of Erdrick, listen now to my words. It is told that in ages past Erdrick fought demons with a Ball of Light. Then came the Dragonlord who stole the precious globe and hid it in the darkness. Now, Hero, thou must help us recover the Ball of Light and restore peace to our land. The Dragonlord must be defeated. Take now whatever thou may find in these Treasure Chests to aid thee in thy quest. Then speak with the guards, for they have much knowledge that may aid thee. May the light shine upon thee, Hero."
At the end of the game, he offers his throne to the hero, but that offer is declined. If Lora is rescued, he joyfully grants his blessings to their union.
- The updated artwork by Akira Toriyama has Lorik looking considerably younger than originally envisioned.
